I think summer in the West of Scotland was on a Wednesday this year!!!!!
I've given up on the Sib.
Started my winter hobbies of hillwalking and bothying a few weeks back.
It really has been a sh*t summer!

I'm genuinely surprised that most comments are about a bad summer.

From a non boating perspective I thought it has been pretty good. I do a lot of mountain biking and its been very warm and dry since early spring. I ride 2 to 4 times a week and cant remember it being wet or shite.

My boat is in the Med, so I've not experienced it from a boating point of view - so in that respect has it been too windy / wet / cold ?

All the above
Jet stream unseasonably low over the UK, lots of media outlets claiming its one of the windiest summers on record

Officially it is looking like the windiest year in over 20 years with only 8 days I think I read in the entire year being classed as calm so far. I.e less than 11 knots of wind I think is the official line.

I can only think of 1 day the temps have been in the 20's up here, it was a few weeks back.

Right now it is a fairly typical summer day up here for this year. Must be gusting in the 30mph range looking outside and chucking it down.

Cheers

I could live with it being windy (within reason) but it is usually accompanied with long periods of rain up here with temps being autum like at best.

On the plus side, petrol bill has been cheap this year!

Cheers
